If anybody needs service on their machine, try Dixon's Sewing Repair Service in north Oklahoma City. This guy is great, fast and doesn't try to sell you anything. He fixed my 1969 Kenmore with original parts, not generic, and in 8 days. He has been in business since the early 50's, and his son also works there. I'm not getting anything from this, just wanted to pass the word out there. Anyway, Buddy and me will be sewing today!!
